Des Arbres


They are walking through an IKEA store when he brings up the idea of having a child. Caught off guard, she is distraught. They leave the store, their hands empty but their heads filled with questions. Is it such a good idea to bring a child into the world in this age of uncertainties? Is what might be a good choice for them a good choice for the environment? What are they most likely to destroy first, the planet or their relationship?

At once funny and eye-opening, the play paints the portrait of a generation that wonders about the future. Superbly adapted from the British play Lungs, winner of the “best new play” award at the Off West End Awards, Des Arbres presents a simple drama, powerful and relevant.
